Poll: Have you gone to see the cherry blossoms in D.C. yet?

Last week was peak bloom for most of the cherry blossoms around the D.C. region: have you gone to see them yet?

Thousands visited D.C. this past weekend and traveled along the Tidal Basin as the area was ringed with pink and white blossoms.

As with most years, the traffic in D.C. around peak bloom is notably atrocious, with visitors advised to bicycle, take public transit or a boat to go into D.C. to see the cherry blossoms.

Of course, Alexandria also has its own share of cherry blossoms throughout Old Town or along the Mount Vernon Trail, though not in the same quantity as along the Tidal Basin.
